Publisher's Summary

From the author of Costa-short-listed and Baileys-long-listed At Hawthorn Time comes a major new novel.

The autumn of 1933 is the most beautiful Edie Mather can remember, although the Great War still casts its shadow over the fields and villages around her beloved home, Wych Farm. Constance FitzAllen arrives from London to document fading rural traditions and beliefs. For Edie, who must soon face the unsettling pressures of adulthood, the glamorous and worldly outsider appears to be a godsend. But there is more to the older woman than meets the eye. As harvest time approaches and pressures mount on the entire community, Edie must find a way to trust her instincts and save herself from disaster.

Great book

Loved the story. I personally prefer more understated reading rather than acting the parts so wasn't hugely keen on the narration style but the book was worth it anyway.
